Although they are aware we have our Presentation Day on this Sunday, the Tigers have provided our club with a further opportunity to spend more time with them. They extend an invitation to anyone that may have other family or friends not attending Presentation Day – when you buy a ticket to see the Melbourne Tigers play the NBL semi-final game against Adelaide at Hisense Arena on Sunday 30th March 2014, you will get a free child’s entry ticket. For further details, please see your Team Manager for the special offer code.
Now we’re into the second week of finals, are you looking for that new way of getting around that dominating player on the other team?
Take a look at these hints from Coach Mac at Basketball for Coaches.
And don’t forget the Tigers’ session this week on Tuesday night for a final tune up of your skills.
Welcome back to the new year. As you may know, our competition starts again this weekend. Refer to the Greenvale teams page for your match times for Saturday.
Training does resume this week, however please be mindful of the health and safety of our players and abide by our Heat Policy <click here to read>.
Take care out there and good luck for the rest of the season – remembering we have an extra couple of games this time before finals start, to bring the season into line with our school terms.
Whatever the reason, there is no better way to show your interest in improving our competition, than getting involved with the referees.
There will be a Beginners Referee Course hosted by Broadmeadows Basketball Association coming up in July. Your expression of interest can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be a minimum of 14 years old to participate and the Referee program is very keen to get some mature age people (parents, older siblings etc) interested as well.
Once numbers are confirmed, dates can be set, then further information will be available on the BBA website.
If you are aged between 6 and 13, then come and join in this 2-day basketball camp – Jamal Brown, Jermaine Maybank and Alex Bogart-King, current BigV players, will be your coaches for two days!! Click on the image below to download a pdf.
